york, msnbc political analyst, jonathan alder, and in washington, msnbc analyst and former rnc chairman, michael steele. and who is never grinchly, michael steele. >> no, never. >> in the spirit of the holiday season, i would like you to tell us, as we're 11 or 12 days before the next recess, what have the republican members of congress, other than throwing a lot of shade at healthcare.gov, what have they fliaccomplished 2013? >> not a lot. that's obvious. this congress has done very, very little. there are eight working days left in its year. and, you know, at the end of the day, they're going to have to look back and go to their constituencies and account for that in some manner, i'm sure, going into next cycle. yes, there's been a lot of noise around obama care. and its launch in october. and the failures that float from that. but as you know, joy, i've said from the very beginning of this year that, you know, the party has an opportunity to put some real -- substantive policy on the table to differentiate itself not just rhetorically from this administration, but, you know, and poli

years in office. howard fineman is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. of course, a "washington post" opinion writer. howard, i was really taken with your perception there. i actually missed it because i was so busy trying to prepare myself to follow up. but you hit something in your years of experience, presidents don't talk about what it's like to be me, if you will. >> no, they don't. and they don't do it in public. i mean, i've covered a lot of presidents, chris, and i've gotten to know them pretty upclose. and they are sometimes self-reflective. but usually in private and usually only momentarily. they don't let their guard down very much. but i think in this case in that interview yesterday which i still think was extraordinary, the president was kind of thinking out loud and talking out loud about his situation. let's face it, his poll ratings are down, his number one program is controversial. he's got three years left in a second term he's not sure what he's going to do with. and i think sometimes he wonders how he's going to muster the motivati

, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former democratic congressman harold ford, jr. joining us from washington nbc's capitol hill correspondent luke russert. luke, i can't believe i'm saying the words government shut down and debt ceiling debacle once again, my friend. what are the chances that the two waring sides get together to pass a budget deal in the next two weeks? >> well, you'd think it would be good after what happened to congress's approval during the last shutdown fight and argument, especially for house republicans. but as of right now it doesn't necessarily have a very rosey outlook. there's been all this talk that paul ryan, the republican from wisconsin and patty murray, democrat from washington chairing this conference committee will figure out some way to lessen the impact of the sequester. as far as a wide reaching grand bargain, that's not going to happen. now they are trying to figure out, okay, what can we do to replace sequester cuts a lot of democrats and republicans don't like in the pentagon but still make it revenue neutral so republicans don't jump off th

with me is ron allen and joining us is jonathan alter, author and msnbc contributor, and james peterson, professor at lehigh university. jonathan, let me go to you first. you've covered president obama extensively. what kind of mandela influence do you see in him? >> huge influence. as he president said in his statement. he said he would not be who he was without nelson mandela. he followed him from an early age. you may recall when the president was a student at occidental college in california, he took part in anti-apartheid demonstrations. he was a leader on that issue and focused on it. but one of the things that is really striking me tonight is what can americans learn. and american society learn from the example of nelson mandela? i think back to civil rights movement, ghandi with his principle of civil disobedience, that helped to give the movement life. so what is mandela's message? well, today we're hearing even very conservative senators and other figures talking about the spirit of forgiveness that he embody embodied in south africa. my question tonight, rev, is can we import

this country with honor. >> ron reagan is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. ron, this sort of old republican thing here about making fun of people because they're unemployed, i think of factory towns where the factory closes. and it's very hard to imagine just pulling up stakes and heading to some other part of the world to get a job. but that's what i guess rand paul thinks they ought to do quick as hell. and the idea the unemployed want to be unemployed is crazy because everybody hates being unemployed. everybody i met hated it except for a short time, nobody wants to watch television all day when they could be an active part of society and proud of themselves. >> well, it's another example that the republicans or particular republicans of being just counterfactual on the one hand. there are no studies that indicate that, you know, if you receive unemployment, you then don't want to work. and from a common sense point of view, how do you imagine that somebody who's already earned an inadequate salary is now going to be satisfied earning half of that money

and a regular on fox. jonathan, good to see you. okay, should the minimum wage be increased and should it be the same across the country, state by state, i'm talking about. if not, what would you base it on, market to market, let's start there, jonathan. >> well, wages are not arbitrary. they're not based on whim and feeling. they're actually based on productivity and the demand for supply and labor. so the wages, resulting in job losses, especially among the fast food works working in this job. and the finding about minimum wage was the determination of the labor department back in 1938 when the first minimum wage was enacted. in effect, it is discrimination, it says to a low skilled worker if you can't produce at $15 an hour you can't produce at all. and of course, it says to the employer you can't hire them either. so it is a lose/lose event for all, and a loss of jobs. >> let's go here, to the heritage foundation, saying increasing memory wage would hurt the jobs and the economy. again, so you seem to agree with that particular proposal? >> and it hurts the workers, as well. i mean

and jonathan turley, said it's also like the rise of the fourth branch that the founders never intended but the federal agency have so much power to carry out in tandem with the executive branch things that the president would like to get done and there's no check on them. >> shannon, that's exactly right. any president that is going to use that regulatory power to the maximum extent they can otherwise their election has not meant anything. so let's take the dodd/frank bill, regulating the financial services or, as jon mentioned, obama care. those laws were probably 10% prescripted by congress, you will do this and you won't do that and that, by definition, is congress handing over the regulatory authorities, vast maneuver and we're seeing it used very aggressively right now. >> that's how we compromise. we can't resolve the issue between us so we leave it to the regulatory agencies. >> and kick it down the can? >> sure. sometimes it goes to court and the courts end up making the rule. but that's a different phenomenon, the one that you started out talking about, which is the president

. jonathan turley with george washington university law says the president has repeatedly crossed constitutional lines. he made recess appointments when the senate is not recess. that is not legal. he declared changes to the law, delays to the law. the law doesn't allow him to do that. in cases he's chosen not to enforce laws like immigration law. is that, is he right? is this a president crossing the constitutional line. >> has a duty to execute the law. in instances with the affordable care act. removal of the cap on out of pocket expenditures he has changed law and doesn't have authority to do. that the president said he can't wait on congress. under our system of government he has to. he has been inconsistent with article two. >> mr. attorney general, thank you for updating us appreciate it. >> thank you. >> when we come back, incredible choices for tonight's video of the day. your choice, your selection is next as we continue tonight on "hannity". if you've got copd like me, hey breathing's hard. know the feeling? copd includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. spiriva is a o

for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation when he said this law, affordable care act is not going to be repeal as long as i'm president and that got everybody on their feet, people who benefit from the law at this time. one of the real focuses is the

jonathan capehart wrote just today, quote, autopsies are done on dead things. every since its march 2013 release, the gop has done everything possible to stay dead. that's pretty tough. michael steele was chairman of the republican party and is now on msnbc political analyst. gentlemen, i want you to look at this. michelle goldberg, by the way is the senior contributing writer for the nation. she's also with us. the gop has had a rough time attracting to the party. said quote, if we want ethnic minority voters to support republicans, we have to engage them and show our sincerity. but republican-led legislatures in over 30 states have enacted some form of voter identification laws on those who vote democratic. it's the most egregious to depress turnout. and it's a strategy unlikely to win over african-american voters, of course. well, this weekend the republican national committee sent out a tweet that may be out of touch. it read, quote, today we remember rosa parks and her role in ending racism. that was back in the '50s.
